I think it was titled "Why the USA must incarcerate criminals". You were used as an example if I remember correctly.
Baawwaahhh!!!
Really, how many years were you in the system?
I'm sorry, coward, your time was up 15 minutes ago. Better you'd not replied at all... just sayin'... So, what's the last play you went to? CD you listened to? Magazine you read? Or don't you have time for such things with your busy schedule? Try not to take so long this time...

I'm pretty sure the title of that last book you claim to have read, coward, was, "Why the U.S. Must Incarcerate More People Than Any Other Nation On The Planet." The answer is pretty simple, actually; it's because they're all soooo sceert of somebody takin' the shit they stole from somebody else earlier... Oooooooo... I think I needs me a security system....

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac bought mortgages from lenders. FM &FM are a government sponsored enterprise that deal with mortgage backed securities. Their purpose is to expand the secondary mortgage market. They sold these subprime mortgages to Wall St.
Now listen closely, I'm agreeing with you, Wall St bundled subprime with prim and dumped on the open market. That is fraud. They should be fined. Some people should be in jail.
As much as I didn't like the man, Bush did try to install tougher regulations on FM & FM.

The initial problems was the banks sold mortgages to Freddie / Fannie that didn't meet the guideline as prescribed by them. The banks agreed to that stipulation when they sold those loans. Therefore, the original fraud was done by the banks who wanted to 'churn' the mortgages so they could generate more mortgages. The subprimes weren't really the problem.. it was the originators... the people who practiced 'capitalism' who created the mess. This is why banks are still in trouble today.

And oh btw, CRA didn't have much to do with it....

http://www.minneapolisfed.org/publications_pa... ;

"...Another way to measure the relationship between the CRA and the subprime crisis is to examine foreclosure activity across neighborhoods that are classified by income. Data made available by RealtyTrac on foreclosure filings from January 2006 through August 2008 indicate that most foreclosure filings (e.g., about 70 percent in 2006) have taken place in middle- or higher-income neighborhoods. More important, foreclosure filings have increased at a faster pace in middle- or higher-income areas than in lower-income areas that are the focus of the CRA.9/(See Table 7.)

Two basic points emerge from our analysis of the available data. First, only a small portion of subprime mortgage originations is related to the CRA. Second, CRA-related loans appear to perform comparably to other types of subprime loans. Taken together, the available evidence seems to run counter to the contention that the CRA contributed in any substantive way to the current mortgage crisis."

When I was a kid I cut a full page picture out of Rolling Stone of Linda Ronstadt sitting on a tabletop in a miniskirt so that you could clearly see her panties and the twin mounds of her pudenda. Then I glued a big hairy curl I'd cut off my beard on the wedge of white and nailed it up on a jobsite. I think it improved efficiency 50%... at least on that portion of the jobsite...

The only thing you are ever able to confirm is just how stupid and racist that you are. Every day you come on and basically repeat the same monotonous crap over and over, Zimmerman had called 911 47 times in the last 58 days..Idiots like him should never be allowed to even own a gun.He had tried to get on the force but he himself had a criminal record.The kid went to the store to get his girlfriend some skittles, and called her to let her know that he was being followed. At some point he confronted Zimmerman as would most people, and Zimmerman shot and killed him. Only in Florida can you get away with murder that way. You and others that attempt to make Zimmerman the victim are clueless and racist morons. Ignorant People like you are Americas embarrassment.

He, Zimmerman, was found innocent.
